Interventional neuroradiology
These minimally-invasive procedures, used to treat aneurysms, strokes, spinal compression fractures and other conditions, are done through incisions no bigger than a nickel. We employ many of the latest advances in neuroangiography including aneurysm coiling, embolization and carotid stenting.

Our innovative research through the Legacy Research Institute allows us to provide care that isn’t otherwise available in the Northwest. Our ongoing neurosurgical, neurobiological and neurotological research includes these clinical trials.
